All That Glitters: Another #Best #Top100 Blog List @larryferlazzo

How kind (and clever, to be honest) of Feedspot’s founder to send the following email and medal! This is clever because when you embed the provided HTML, as shown below, you will increase Feedspot’s popularity and SEO rankings. When you go to the main address, you see that Feedspot has made a habit of making lists of blogs, all of which point back to them! Apparently Feedspot selected blogs with a high Google rep and search ranking, social media influence, and expert review. Notice a pattern in the images below? All the titles say “Best” and include a number:

Forgive me, Feedspot, I regret my skeptical view of this effort, especially since Larry Ferlazzo was left off the top 100 list!!! I can’t imagine a top 10 list leaving off Larry’s blog, much less a top 100. So, I have my doubts.

Email:

My name is Anuj Agarwal. I’m Founder of Feedspot.

I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 100 Language Learning Blogs  on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!

What do YOU think? Am I being too tough on Feedspot?
